Contrary to what you might think, the perfect honeymoon in Switzerland does not start in the capital Bern or Zurich, with its more than 50 museums and its bustling nightlife. Nor in the diplomatic Geneva. A romantic trip should start in an idyllic location on the shores of Lake Geneva, in the city of Lausanne. For centuries, the capital of the canton of Vaud was bishop’s headquarters.
Less than an hour’s drive from Lausanne is Gruyeres, a small medieval town with cobblestone streets, houses of traditional architecture and wooden ceilings. On a small hill, stands a 13th-century castle, drawn from a fairy tale, which treasures intact the architecture, history and regional culture of eight centuries. The charm of the place is strongly linked to its cheese-making.
